CBI on Tuesday filed a chargesheet in a court here against former media baron Peter Mukerjea, in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case, accusing him of murder, criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.

The agency filed the supplementary chargesheet in the case before Additional Metropolitan Magistrate R V Adone here.

Peter, whose wife Indrani Mukerjea is the prime accused in the case, was arrested on November 19 for his alleged role in the murder conspiracy. He was in CBI custody for two weeks. His bail plea was rejected on February 12 by a special CBI court which observed that the charge sheet was yet to be filed and investigation in the matter was still on. While Mukerjea (59) is lodged in Arthur Road prison here, Indrani is in Byculla women’s jail. Others arrested in the case are Sanjeev Khanna (Indrani’s ex-husband) and her former driver Shyamvar Rai.

The trio were chargesheeted in the case after Sheena (24), Indrani’s daughter from an earlier relationship, was allegedly strangled in a car in April 2012 and her body burnt was dumped in a forest in adjoining Raigad district. CBI, which took over the probe from Mumbai Police late last year, suspects that financial transactions led to the murder of Sheena. The murder took place in 2012 but came to light in late August last year.
